Waiting For Your Personal Invitation From the Non-Profit CEO?

The Attorney General’s Office issued a press release today in collaboration with The Michigan Nonprofit Association, Council of Michigan Foundations,Michigan Association of United Ways:

A guide to supporting Michigan’s charitable nonprofit organizations

Some good advice for charitable giving.

One point I thought worth mentioning – volunteering.

If a charitable non-profit is worth giving your money to, why not give your time and expertise as well?

I serve on the board of directors for Mel Trotter Ministries.

At Mel Trotter, we are always looking for people to volunteer who have a heart for the homeless and hurting in West Michigan.

We honestly could use anyone who is reading this. If you are passionate about our ministry, there is a place for you to use your time and talent at Mel Trotter. If interested – e-mail me.

Maybe rescue mission work isn’t your thing.

It is equally  true of all non-profit ministries – they could use you whether they personally let you know or not.

This is a call to everyone, but particularly millennials.

Non-profits may not (do not) do the best job of reaching out to you individually to engage you with their ministries. That’s a “growth area” for non-profits. We are all working on it.

However, that shouldn’t stop you from reaching out to a ministry that you are passionate about and asking the question:

How can I serve?

Millennials – I’m reminded of the Bible – 1 Timothy 4:12 –

Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers

If you are passionate about serving – there is a place for you.

Don’t wait for a personal invitation from the Non-profit’s CEO.

Take the initiative.

Get engaged.

Just show up!
